Default Finally get my rear bumper straight and....

This happens

Been working trying to get my rear bumper fixed since the bodylift meet
Finally got it some what better last tuesday. still was not right Well some guy in a 09 honda civic is gonna have to buy me a whole new one


He rear ended a GMC truck then in turn hit me. Bumper is bent and summit rear brackets are gone

I had to go to the hospital and I ended up with torn ligaments in my neck










Medicine was kinda kicking in so the wife took a picture to show me later

On the bright side. The Ranger bumper faired much better than the Fullsized GMC

No surgeries that I was told of

Wife told me when she got there to get the truck moved off the road. She got the insurance info from the honda guy. I guess he said sorry yaddie yaddie

She then made the comment that I had been working on that rear bumper for weeks and I finally got it some what straight. Was really upset then
